Today I am excited to introduce you to Lori O’Harver. This lady knows her bronc riding and you can find out more about that on her Bronc Riding Nation Facebook page. But today, I asked her on the show to talk about the most colorful and inspiring display of cowboy culture you can find anywhere. The National Finals Rodeo 2014, which just wrapped up in Las Vegas Saturday night. We talk about the world championship races, the goings on around town and some of rodeo’s more colorful characters. I really think you guys are going to enjoy this one.

This year marked 30 years since the NFR moved from Oklahoma City to the bright lights of Las Vegas. And there are so many rodeo-related activities to partake in for those 10 days in December, that one person can barely scratch the surface. Lori and I attempt to give you the Cliff’s Notes version so you can decide what activities you may want to get involved with next year.

What do you think is the most important quality for any good cowboy to have?

Try. The unwillingness to give up.

    Great podcast Alyssa! Loved the stories Lori told and just wonderful insight into the NFR. I thought the arena was looking a little brown in the later rounds 😉
